CONSPIRACY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: Masada Part 4

This is the penultimate war that was ever waged. Our very existence is as a result of it. The good guys lost unfortunately. We have been slaves of Rome the shadow government since. As time warriors we must right the wrongs from the past. Only then can we achieve true dominion. Rome wrote the history The traitor Josephus was the scribe. The archeology doesn't support his version of events ergo he lied. All that we know was based upon that lie and the mind control we have been exposed too. Plato's laws of logic discern scripture. There are two dialectics. They are glaringly obvious. If you believe in Jesus accept his calling the rock of the church Satan and see them for their works. God said the temples were for the uncircumcized. Call him a liar and accept the words of men or embrace his footstool. For only God can release us from this system of bondage Rome. Altars, idols, temples and money are not the way. Scripture says that. The Lord is waiting for the faithful.

We are told that the zealots killed themselves to prevent the Romans from enslaving them or torturing them as they had in the past. However, after such a long and arduous siege I find that difficult to believe. Josephus surrendered to the Romans and was taken into the custody of Vespasian who eventually became Emperor. Vespasian granted Josephus his freedom upon becoming Caesar. He chronicled the Jewish wars including Mesada. The winners write the history and cloud it with their perspectives. As a slave, Josephus was not free to write the Jewish history. He had to write Rome's version of it. So the mass suicide to me seems implausible. The zealots refused to kill Jews in the battle which would have prevented their defeat as the slaves built the ramp. I sincerely doubt they would kill Jews at the end. A more plausible ending to me would be the Romans using a Jew possibly even Josephus to lure them into surrender on the promise of good treatment. Then in captivity they were slaughtered as Eleazar Ben Jair anticipated. To mask the crime the scribe Josephus penned a fiction about mass suicide. The zealots were fighters. While with a capacity to resist, I doubt they would capitulate. The war with Rome continues to this very day, but there are very few who realize it.

Masada is an American television miniseries that aired on ABC in April 1981. Advertised by the network as an "ABC Novel for Television," it was a fictionalized account of the historical siege of the Masada citadel in Israel by legions of the Roman Empire in AD 73. The TV series' script is based on the novel The Antagonists by Ernest Gann, with a screenplay written by Joel Oliansky. The siege ended when the Roman armies entered the fortress, only to discover the mass suicide by the Jewish defenders when defeat became imminent.


The miniseries starred Peter O'Toole as Roman legion commander Lucius Flavius Silva, Peter Strauss as the Jewish commander Eleazar ben Ya'ir, and Barbara Carrera as Silva's Jewish mistress. It was O'Toole's first appearance in an American miniseries.

The music for Parts I and II were composed by Jerry Goldsmith. Because of myriad production delays, Goldsmith was forced to move on to other previously contracted scoring commitments. Parts III and IV were composed by Morton Stevens, based on the themes and motifs Goldsmith had written.


Masada was filmed on location at the site of the ancient fortress, in the Judean Desert, Israel. Remains of a ramp, created during the filming to simulate the ramp built by the Romans to take the fortress, can still be seen at the site. ABC, concerned that the audience would be unfamiliar with the historical background of the story, commissioned a 30-minute documentary, Back To Masada. Starring Peter O'Toole, it recounts the history of the Jewish revolt against Rome. The network gave the documentary to its affiliates to run in the weeks before the premiere of the miniseries.

Part IV

As the ramp nears completion, Eleazar faces the fact that the final confrontation with the Romans is not far off. The Zealots break into Herod's Armory and begin to prepare for what they believe will be a straightforward storming of the fortress walls by the Romans. When the ramp is complete, the Romans wheel out the armoured siege tower and battering-ram. Eleazar then realizes that he had underestimated Silva's strategy. As the tower begins moving up the ramp, Eleazar has his people build "an inner wall that will absorb the blows of the ram and not shatter." Made from wooden beams from Herod's Palace roof and packed with dirt, they finish it just as the tower reaches the top of the ramp. The Romans quickly break through the stone walls of the fortress, but the ram does nothing against the improvised inner wall. As the wall is made partly of wood, Silva orders his men to set fire to it. Deducing that it would take all night for the wall to burn through, Silva has his men stand down; the rest of the night is tense for both sides, as the fitful wind may as easily spread the blaze to the siege tower as burn down the inner wall. The next day, the Romans break into the fortress, only to discover that Eleazar and his people had all committed suicide during the night.

The closing line is said by a dispirited and despondent Silva, who mourns all that has been hoped and planned and lost by both sides whilst fighting for "a rock, in the middle of a wasteland, on the shore of a poisoned sea..."
